Culture sector falls victim to avarice of president’s confidante

For background info please see this post


President Park Geun-hye’s brief apology Tuesday afternoon that lasted all of 1 1/2 minutes was the final blow for those who had been holding out hope that what they had seen in the news was not true.

Watching Park on television admit to seeking Choi Soon-sil’s assistance made stomachs churn. She said that she consulted with Choi, who had helped her during difficult times, so as to be “thorough” and out of “pureness of heart.”

If this is how Park truly views the situation, then she can be accused of being a simpleton, unfit for the office of president and all its complex responsibilities. Park should have known that the minute she took the oath of presidency, she was no longer an ordinary person. The minute she swore that solemn oath, her every word, every action thereafter, became the president’s words and actions.

If she had previously relied on a close confidante, now, as the occupant of the Blue House, she ought to have consulted her numerous assistants and advisers, the top brains of the country, not “some Gangnam ajumma,” as a ruling Saenuri Party member referred to Choi.

It is truly frightening that this confidante, with no official position in the government and apparently without any qualifications that could have given her the sort of power she apparently wielded, was allowed to continue uninterrupted.

Choi’s involvement in the establishment of the Mir Foundation and K-Sports Foundation -- funded by large contributions from Federation of Korean Industries members -- is now being investigated, as are her close associates, including Cha Eun-taek, a well-known music video and commercial film producer, whose phenomenal rise to power in the cultural sector has been credited to his relationship with Choi.

Not surprised since she basically hasn't been doing anything with the group in ages, I worry for the other girls and those in DSP since it seems like the end is near for the company

Still Slow-mona? Answer this poll! + Some stuff about Friending Memes

Hi Omonian babes! As most of you might be aware, we've been conducting a little experiment to try to make loading times a little faster on the main Omona home pages. We've asked submitters to limit their content outside of the cuts to just 1 video/image/gif and 1 extra gif, and to have everything else under lj-cuts instead of just lj-spoilers. Here's the post from last week in case you missed it (sorry lurkers, it's for members' eyes only.) And here's that performance poll we said we've have:

This poll is closed.

Have you noticed a difference in loading speeds of the Omona home page?

Yes, it loads much quicker now
No, it still loads slowly for me
Omona was never really slow for me

As always, we are very thankful to all the people making posts, and for making our job easier by remembering to use the lj-cuts. Thank you for your time! Please leave your questions, comments, and puppy pics down below. :)

The Return of Superman Ep 153

[Happiness to People Who Give Us Joy] Seoeon, Seojun and their friend Seunghun go to a movie theater for the first time in their lives. They enjoy watching a movie and empathize with the movie characters. Donggeun, Jiho and Gyojin play with Sian, Seola and Sua and they have a wild party together. Soeul and Daeul help their father prepare a party for the village elders.

That kiddie movie theater was really cool, with their own little seats and everything. I feel like so much of the 5 siblings now is having other people spend time with them instead of Donggook. He's busy with work, and he's not around.
